Tom Brady plays as Aaron Rodgers more often than himself when it comes to Madden.

One might think that Tom Brady, the recently announced cover boy for the upcoming installment of the Madden game franchise, would prefer to play with his real-life team, the New England Patriots. However, Brady revealed that in reality he usually selects the Green Bay Packers or Seattle Seahawks.

Brady explained that his 9-year-old son usually plays as the Patriots, leaving him to select another team when they play each other.

"I don't like [facing the Patriots in Madden]," Brady said to ESPN. "It does feel weird. I feel like I'm going up against my own guys that I love. Julian [Edelman] catches a pass, and I've got to tackle him. I've been Green Bay, because I like that offense. And I've been Seattle because I love being that defense."

Brady didn't clarify whether he liked the Packers offense due to the playbook or the players, but either makes plenty of sense. Green Bay features a stacked offensive personnel group and a plethora of useful formations and plays, making it one of the more popular choices in the game.
